Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Fantastic house in a fantastic location; 5 minutes to Carbis Bay Beach, less than 30 min lovely walk to Porthminster Beach, another 5 mins to St Ives along the beach if the tide’s out! Or for even more convenience, Less than 5 minute walk to the branch line train station (train every 30 mins) and you’re at Porthminster within 3 mins

Excellent location and the view from the main balcony is stunning. Very comfortable and well equipped.

Another lovely family stay in Carbis Bay it’s a very hard place to beat with a young family. Stunning sandy beach, just a walk to St Ives and we even got to see dolphins and seals. The property was just the right size and layout for our family. A prefect holiday given the 2020 circumstances.

Lovely holiday! The position of Lauirston is house is fantastic and the house has plenty of room.

Excellent house plenty of room for large families

Lauriston is in an excellent location. We had a three generation family holiday and the area provided something for everyone. The younger members enjoyed the local sandy beaches and water sports. Trips to Marazion, the Lizard lighthouse, and seal watching at Godrevy Point were enjoyed by all. The coastal path to St Ives is a pleasant thirty minute walk. There was also a good bus service to many parts of this area.

Fantastic stay for the 3rd year . Have already booked for next year. Super secure property.

We had to move to Lauriston halfway through our holiday, the property we were previously staying at, Treglyn in Hayle, being riddled with faults.

Nonetheless, Lauriston is a beautiful home, full of character and we very much enjoyed our last 4 days there. The view from the balcony is really the icing on the cake, but the house is finished and furnished beautifully, with everything you could possibly want.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

We were so sorry for the issues at the other property, which were unfortunately not something that we could have foreseen or prevented, and has now all been rectified. We completely understand that it is not the kind of thing that you want to experience while on holiday, and we were glad that we could find an alternative property that was suitable for you, so that you could continue your break here in Cornwall. We have been in contact since and we are really glad that you enjoyed your time at Lauriston. Tanya, Customer Services

A big family group of us have just stayed here and could not recommend the house enough, the views alone make this house but the location is fantastic, being 1 of the drivers of a big group it was nice to be able to use the train so close to us to have days out rather then driving and with a 2 min train drive to st ives it came in very handy. It is based on a hill which wasnt a major problem for us but its worth a mention and could have done with having a larger fridge, very minor things. Overall we really loved this stay our 3rd year down Cornwall and would not hesitate to book this house again

Lovely house and location and will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic holiday in a fantastic house. Many thanks we will be back soon.

What a stunning Cottage to stay in would definitely stay again . Myself and my children and grandchildren stayed here for 10 nights for my daughters wedding in Carbis bay . A stunning backdrop from the balcony for our wedding photos . Very pleased we booked to stay in this beautiful house .

Overall we had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed our stay in the lauriston. We found it spacious having the 2 lounges as a bonus and the use of the balcony with stunning views day and night. Very Well equipped

Lauriston is a wonderful comfortable house for 6 up to 10 people. All enjoyed having their own bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Location was great overseeing Carbis bay. An easy walk of 40 minutes along the cost led right into the centre of St. Ives.

We had a really lovely week staying at Lauriston. The weather during our holiday was mixed and so we put all of the facilities in the property to good use including the central heating, laundry room and sun balcony. We had a dog with us and found the enclosed garden and automatic gates particularly useful. The main open plan living space also worked well for us, this was a very comfortable and beautifully decorated space.

The property lived up to all of our expectations and we would be very happy to use Aspects holidays again.

Lovely holiday at the Lauriston amazing number of bathrooms and bedrooms . Stunning views from the balcony . Minutes walk to the train station. Secure garden for our dog . Very good amount of utensils and plates cups etc . All in all very comfortable would definitely recommend.

A good size house with great views

We had a lovely week at Lauriston.

Lauriston is a must for any family wishing to stay in Carbis Bay. Excellent location c/w stunning sea views from the balcony. The property is finished to a very high standard and there is ample space for the whole family. We hope to stay again but fear it's popularity will make that difficult as people arrive this year will no doubt wish to return too! *
